Quick Tip for Clipping Short Threads

Evamarie Gomez and Stephani Miller, Videographer: Jeff Roos

You can place these small clippers against the fabric to snip threads with little risk of cutting the garment. These clippers are also a great tool for trimming jump threads on machine embroidery projects.
